    $75? Ouch. Hopefully it will be a bit cheaper from TaoBao - Yep US$48
    12cm is about MP Minibot height? Taller than a standard Legends but still pretty compact. Pretty complicated figure...

    $75 is rough but since he's deluxe size at 5" i guess that works out about the going rate, though $60 would've been perfect

    He's $69.99 at TFSource and ChosenPrime, it'll save a few bucks at least.

    It might be even cheaper through ShowZ Store, or HZJ401 on eBay, but $64.99 - $79.99 is exactly what I’d expect for the new faction leader sets.

    Now, I’m not super feeling the original deco, but...

    Yeah, that’s the Blue Raspberry perfection, up there.

    However
    , that might not be available until 2020–if at all. ><

    Now, if Megs still comes with a pair of swords, I might bite on the original deco’s coloring. Or, maybe I’ll just be won over in the intervening months as the initially flat renders are developed and realized. The photographed prototypes already show a bit more detail and a better impression of just how neat this will be, even with the uniform coloring of the plastery resin, so I’m pretty excited to see more of this and any other beasts in IF’s roster.

    IF’s been getting better and better, with their Deluxe sized Jetfire and Scorponok being particular high points for this year, and the last. And, I think there’s every reason to believe that their BW offerings could be just as beloved.

    Oh missed that post by Turong. 12cm he and opop are certainly deluxes then. Makes em about on par as LordScorp probably should have expected that.

    Yeah MP Bumblebee and OxMax Hellion are 12cm. My sellers has these at only 5 bucks more than Alkaid and Merak which seems fine. They're all similar to LordScorp and Cygnus so I expect about 60 bucks for IF deluxes and that seems to remain a constant.

    For a 4.6 inch toy? ROTFLMBO. I know 3rd party is expensive, but that's just a naked and cynical cash grab.

    Isn’t that the same price as their Lord Scorpion? These two are similar sizes, and the transformation will be significantly more complex (and likely with a higher parts count, too)

    True, but the alternatives are about three times as expensive.
    That's how I see it in this case at least.
    If you want your money's worth (by way of speaking) wait for Hasbro to do him with greebles and bird-shit all over in about ten years time.

    Given the many companies that have tackled this character, it would not surprise me if Takara is already working on an MP version and just got beat to the punch

    Maybe.
    They seem to be concentrating on the season one cast for now.
    They are just doing a BW Megatron, but they might want to do another BW Megs of Primal in a year or so.

    Is there any way to fold up or hide that arrow shaped thing on his crotch?

    You should take note of how the price has neither shocked nor dismayed long-term IF fans. We definitely feel like we get what we pay for, yo.

    It's just the robot equivalent of a loin-cloth. No biggie.

    Also, the figure isn't released yet; you have access to the same pictures we do. So why ask?
